SPILL GROUP and skill game provider GameAccount have joined forces to launch the next generation in online Backgammon. GameAccount's browser-based GammonTournaments.com requires minimal download effort, which unlike other online backgammon games, can be played immediately. Furthermore, GammonTournaments.com has been designed to appeal to the broadest range of players, from recreational newcomers to the more serious experienced player. The site's target demographic is both men and women. The multiplayer games will offer several options, including 'MoneyPlay' and 'MatchPlay' scoring formats. GameAccount also offers single players the opportunity to play against revolutionary "playerbots" of all skill levels.
Backgammon is a hugely popular global parlour game that has migrated successfully online. Hundreds of thousands of people enjoy a game of virtual Backgammon and are willing to pay to take their chances at winning money prizes. The idea of creating GammonTournaments.com came naturally to SPILL GROUP and GameAccount - who have empowered players to stake up to as much as EUR 250, potentially pocketing nearly twice as much in winnings.
GameAccount's Backgammon games are designed to maximize speed in order to meet players' needs for fast results. GammonTournament's games are classified as skill games and will therefore be distributed across all Spill Group's portals.
Players can compete worldwide, owing to the fact that the GameAccount technology platform can seamlessly handle all multi-currency and multilingual features required by the SPILL GROUP. Another convenient advantage is GammonTournament.com ability to offer several reputable and secure payment methods for customers.
"Choosing GameAccount as partner for setting up GammonTournaments was relatively easy, because we continue to work together very successfully. GameAccount is well known for their ability to provide high quality skill games and we are delighted to expand our cooperation," said Reinout te brake, Marketing & Business Development Director of SPILL GROUP.
